In fact, Daniel Bedard, 36, was about to step into the bathtub of the Montreal-area residence on Monday when law officers, tipped off by the alarm system, showed up at the house with a canine unit, police tell the Associated Press.
Already, they say, the bather had helped himself to some sweets from the singer’s kitchen.
“He opened the water faucets, was pouring a nice warmish bath [and] he even managed to eat some pastry that was in the ‘fridge,’ ” Laval police spokesman Franco Di Genova told the news service.
When confronted by police inside the home, Bedard reportedly told them: “Hey, guys what are you doing here?”
Police repeated the same question back to him, then arrested and charged Bedard with breaking and entering, auto theft and causing property damage (after he jumped the fence onto the property).
The arraignment was Tuesday.
And where were Dion and husband René Angélil when all this was going on? They were believed to be at their Florida residence, says AP.
